Castello Doria has a €5 (free for kids) entry fee so many people seem to walk up there, and turn around. It’s well worth going in and exploring. Our 4yo had a great time climbing the stairs, looking through the peep holes searching for ‘pirates’,...More

We climbed up the steep stairs on the right side of town to the castle. We paid the 5 euro each. We were amazed. First, the sights from the top were unbelievable. The scenes of the surrounding area were wonderful. Next, we had the place...More

There is a 5 euro entrance fee and it is well worth it. A few cute cats will great you on your way up through the entrance. Then with a little more climbing, the views are spectacular. Great panoramic view of the city and the...More

The views from this castle were indeed very good. Looking down on the Church of St. Peter were stunning; however, unless we missed something, there was not much else to see or explore. The only area open to see was the amphitheater. There were no...More

Was very surprised at how much there was to see and learn about inside the Castle Doria! Especially loved that it was right in the heart of Portevenere and we didn't have to travel to see it! Wonderful views of the harbor from the Castle!
